I guess I'll also embed some Watts, since he made the inaccessibility of it so accessible.
This is hardcore /kind/ stuff. Where can I get a pdf?
I just finished a biography of Alfred Kinsey and came out disliking the guy, even if I can relate to him in some ways. He had a lot of compassion for sexual outsiders, but he could be a pompous, overbearing jerk to anyone he considered beneath him.
I guess in some ways it's an example of how not to act.
So you'd rather be patronizing to those beneath you?
He was snobbish and contemptuous of people over relatively trivial differences. For example, he'd ridicule his students in his pre-sex research days for their Indiana accents. He had a pretty domineering personality. It's not like other people were acting in a way that warranted it either. He would snub or get downright hostile to others who had been nothing but cordial with him, like Robert Yerkes of the National Research Council.
It's one thing not to mince words and to be upfront about where you stand, but it's another thing to act as callously as he often did.
